HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — WDHN News has received an update on the search for the vandal who defaced two Dothan businesses with vulgar graffiti.

A neighbor tells WDHN News that a mother brought her teenager forward after seeing the destruction left by graffiti. It covered much of the back of a Dollar General store and a pump at the Marathon Gas Station on Westgate Parkway and Denton Road.

The graffiti contains graphic words and obscene symbols. The mother is said to be trying to work things out between her son and the businesses.
